Sophie... best friends are forever

Who Was The Amazing Sophie?

This is the story of Sophie, a rough coated Collie who was a Certified Therapy Dog for over 12 years. You will learn about her remarkable life, the lives she touched, and the lessons both she and I learned. This book is also a tribute to all people and their pets that do therapy work, and it may be an inspiration to dog owners everywhere. “Sophie… best friends are forever” is meant to honor Sophie’s memory and to make people realize how important it is to give back in this world. With Sophie, every day was a new beginning and started with a clean slate. In her work, she also left the patients that she interacted with and their visitors happier and in a state of emotional healing. If you are a dog lover, you will certainly enjoy this book as you experience the ups and downs and emotions of Sophie’s story.  Even if you don’t have a dog, you will still enjoy and be part of the experiences of the people that Sophie met.  Finally, you can learn Sophie’s most important lesson…that every day is a gift.

“Sophie, could not have been a better therapist, whether her new friend was young or old, she delivered that special something, either a welcome distraction for children or a comforting, nostalgic reminder for older adults who had grown up watching Lassie. Sweet Sophie was a friend for patients and staff alike. In fact, the staff looked forward to Sophie’s visits as much as the patients.”-Gail Diedrichsen
